About the Film
In the futurist action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented - but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a looper - a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) - is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good... until the day the mob decides to 'close the loop', sending back Joe's future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.
Best film of 2012
Forget about The Master, forget about The Hobbit or The Dark Knight Rises. It terms of ambition, imagination and originality, Looper is by far the best film of 2012.
Out of the ordinary....
Halfway through this film I was struck with the unfamiliar sensation that I was watching something extraordinary; in a completely separate league from the usual mainstream dross emanating out of Hollywood. All the characters had predicaments you could share along with them. Even if you got confused by the time-travel stuff like I did now and then, you could just relax and let the film tell you the story. I suspect the few bad reviews of Loopers are from the Formula Freaks. This will be a cult movie twenty years from now. Top drawer direction and script. Well done.
About time I came across a film that makes you think . Great film from start to finish
